Track Name: Here Comes The Sun [Minor Key]
Play Count: 52 plays
Here’s the original recording of “Here Comes The Sun”, digitally altered from a major scale to a minor one. This is my first attempt at transforming a song like this. (It’s got its fair share of kinks, but you gotta start somewhere, right?) In a minor scale, it feels like something John would have written; it’s just pure sneering irony right up the wazoo.
This was inspired by a guy name Oleg Berg, who has been morphing songs from major to minor keys (and vice versa) with fascinating, hilarious, and tonally inappropriate results. Hoping to do more of these in the future – and to get better at it, too.
I really love the way this sounds. :D
Having the kind of day where I bang my thumb on something just the right way to pull the nail away from the skin and then it bleeds a bit under the nail, twice on the same thumb, and where I can’t remember the layout of my own house in the dark like I usually do and manage to kick a shelf, quite possibly fracturing my pinky toe in the process.
This man, James Verone, robbed a bank for one dollar. Why only one dollar? Because he knew that in prison he could get the medical care he could not afford with his part time salary as a convenience store clerk. He was approved for food stamps, but they did little to help his finances. Between his back problems, carpel tunnel, and arthritis, he simply couldn’t handle the pain any longer.
On June 9th, he sent a letter to his local paper, the Gaston Gazette, that stated: “When you receive this a bank robbery will have been committed by me. this robbery is being committed by me for one dollar. I am of sound mind but not so much sound body.”
He then took a cab to the RBC Bank, and handed the teller a note asking for one dollar and medical attention. He quietly took a seat in the lobby and waited for police to arrive.
Since Verone only stole one dollar, he was only charged with larceny. His bail, which he doesn’t plan to pay is set at $2,000, reduced from the normal $100,000. He’s scheduled to see a doctor this Friday, and hopes to get foot surgery, back surgery and to have a protrusion on his check treated.
To me, this is the perfect example of how disturbingly corrupt and unjust our health care system has become under HMO’s. For this man, or any person for that matter, feels that he needs to be imprisoned just to see a doctor, is ridiculous.
This is exactly what I hate about America. Why is it that you can buy an entire house with money you don’t have, but still can’t apply for health care if you don’t meet the requirements? That’s messed up.
Just read it.
Dear person in Illinois who logged into my email account at 2:22AM (your time) and changed my password,
I’m pissed at you. I just had to change that password because my account got hacked. Now it’ll take me weeks to remember the new one. I don’t trust any internet company with my phone number but I had to hand mine over just to be sure you couldn’t do this again. It doesn’t look like you did anything other than change the password, and I hope that’s really all you did. I cannot handle this right now. My mental health is far from good at the moment and my stress levels are so high that if any trouble comes from your unauthorized access to my account, it’s gonna be mental breakdown central all up in here. And I simply cannot afford that right now.
Whoever the hell you are, you better fess up and then piss off.
May you step on a Lego every morning for the rest of your life,
AAAAAHHHH WINCHESTER CHRISTMAS AAAAAAH. I love this so much.
So anxious I feel like I’m going to be ill. I do hope this doesn’t continue as a trend until after I talk to my parents.
The Winchesters are all morons.
